Mexicali (Glorietta)

2 saves

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

I inherited my parents' love for Mexicali—the place being one of their favorite date spots in the past. It's where I first learned how to properly eat a burrito. The quality may have changed (or is it my taste?), but Mexicali will stay in my heart forever. I always get the steak burrito; and I also enjoy the sauces that come with the nachos.

Silantro Fil-Mex (ATC)

1 save

Muntinlupa City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Okay fine, Silantro's technically not Mexican since it's Filipino-Mex fusion, but I have to add it to this list because of their divine nachos! I always order a serving, no fail. It's enough a meal on its own, especially the meat-loaded option. I always get the plain nachos though; I feel like it tastes better—and it doesn't make me feel too sinful afterwards.

Lágrima

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Lagrima deserves all the praise for their homemade tortillas! Try the quesadillas, they're absolutely delightful. Their nachos are also great; I feel like there's some kind of addictive ingredient in that cheese, because I can never get enough.

Lo de Alberto (Makati)

Makati City, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Everything you get here is guaranteed to put a smile on your face! I've yet to taste real Mexican food (you know, that's really from Mexico) but I reckon it's something like Lo de Alberto's menu. The staff are superb at their Makati branch—friendly, efficient, and quick! The Gorditas are a must-try; it was so good, my friends and I ordered another one right after finishing one plate!

Tucked in the streets of Poblacion, El Chupacabra always satisfies with scrumptious Mexican fare that always seems to go perfectly with a cold beer.
